, whatever you want to say the death of kim jong-il last december. that they are doing this test to further their own national security interests and, one of those interests is to have a robust, i would argue, nuclear deterrent against the united states. now, i would also add that they are more than willing to negotiate about that. i don't think it's inevitable that north korea would have nuclear-tipped ballistic missiles aimed at the united states but i do think they intend to try to accomplish that and this launch is a step, probably an early step, in terms of the developing that capability. jon: well the u.n., the u.s., seoul, said if you launch the missile it will be very provocative act. it could bring on new sanctions. i thought we were sanctioning everything we could in north korea. are we not? >> no, no. again a lot of new techniques have been applied developing new sanctions to iran. one of the methods to apply u.n. and e.u. sanctions of iran was to study the economy of iran. look for have anotherabilities in their financial system and their trade system and that kind of approach h

of this means a lot to the new young leader of north korea, kim jong-un. it is aimed to mark the first anniversary of the death of his father, the former leader of the country, kim jong-il. it was supposed to mark a year to show that the impoverished nation is on its way to be strong and prosperous. we see pongyang magging the message more than it usually does both for the domestic and international audience. my contacts are saying they will call this a success whatever happens. secretary of state hillary clinton here in europe for a nato meeting is also managing her message pretty closely too. she is saying that the u.s. is concerned and she is telling north korea to not even consider this launch. the reason from the u.s. standpoint again, if this is successful, this is the long range intercontinental ballistic missile. it could have a range of 6,000 miles plus. that could put whatever it is shooting up there in range of los angeles. and just breaking news here, gregg, from nato itself. that organization is saying that it has grave concerns about this activity. back to you. gregg: gre

for the young leader, kim jong-un, to consolidate power and make north korea still more relevant to north korea's presidential elections which will be held next wednesday. because the north had announced technical glitches earlier this week and extended the launch window to the 2 th of the -- 29th of the month, the timing caught the world offguard but could not dodge strong criticism. south korea for one lashed out, of course, calling it a violation of u.n. security council resolutions. and china, north korea's long-time ally, also expressed regret launch calling on the state to abide by u.n. resolutions. now u.n. security council diplomats have also set up an emergency meeting today at the request of the u.s. and japan. back to you. >> all right. thanks for that. >>> the senior fellow at the school of international studies at the technological university. thanks for joining us. what does this test do today? what's the impact on regional securit security? >> short term, i don't think the impact is going to be particularly severe. in some ways it's been priced in. and for once, north korea's roc

while now since kim jong-un has taken over. i just want to ask him has been any sign that north korea's military and security policy strategy hasn't changed since he is come on board, or reduce it as a continuation of how they act in their approaches under his predecessors? >> well, i think we're still in the wait-and-see stages. there had been, i believe you can take a look at the last number of months. there have been i think a number of signs that might lead you to believe that the new regime leadership is going to take a more, i would say rational approach to how to deal with their own economy and how they deal with their own people, and how they deal internationally. and so i think generally there's been a feeling that there might be some hope there. however, now we are approaching, once again, a potential violation of a u.n. security council resolution, and we encourage the leadership in north korea to consider what they are doing here and implications in the overall security environment on the korean peninsula, as well as destination. >> anything new? we been hearing some rumbl
